In respect to Her Majesty, the late Queen Elizabeth II; please note that the leisure centre will be closed on Monday 19th September.
We have received the following information from Eckington Swimming Club which you need to be aware of:
There are a limited number of spectators seats on the main balcony (144 seats) plus some standing room on the small balcony. There is also a viewing area in the cafe for disabled viewers.
Spectator tickets will be sold on the day on a 1st come basis.
We will be accommodating all swimmers either in the Dance Studio or in the Marquee outside, connected to the dance studio (please take appropriate clothing for the weather as it could cold in the marquee, it might also be wise taking a fold down chair to sit on as no information has been provided about seating for swimmers).
Sporty Swim will be setting up their swim shop and Butlers Mobile Engraving will also be with us to engrave your medals while you wait (at a small cost).
Free parking is available on site.
Sessions we will not be swimming over the forthcoming Bank Holiday Weekends :
Easter Sunday 17th April
Easter Monday 18th April
We have just started the process for getting small pool groups C, D and E back into the water for the beginning of July.
We have sent emails to parents of all Tadpole C, D and E swimmers with details of next steps. If you haven’t received the email but think you should have, please check your junk folder and if it’s not there please contact Clare Noble at firstname.lastname@example.org asap as deadlines are tight and spaces are limited.
We don’t as yet have a date for the return of Tadpole A and B swimmers.

We are on the final step towards swimmers returning to the main pool from 1st June.
Yesterday (May 10th) letters were posted out to all main pool swimmers who have paid their Swim England registration fees. The letter contains information about allocated swim sessions and fees to be paid along with a declaration form which needs signing and returning in the SAE.
We have also included information about our new club software – Club Organiser – which we will be using to manage members payments via direct debit. We will be sending emails with Club Organiser account activation details on Saturday 15th May. Once activated we need swimmers to set up a direct debit mandate through the Club Organiser account by 22nd May at the latest. This is a deadline that cannot be extended if a swimmer wishes to return at the beginning of June.
